I partook in the BEES Transition Year course to find out if I was sure I wanted to go down the path of science as my career option. I thought the course would give me a good knowledge of all the courses BEES has to provide and what I did or didn’t have any interest in studying.
Now that the week has unfortunately finished, I am positive I want to study science in UCC when I finish my leaving cert. I found the week educational, practical, interesting, eye opening and above all fun.

Coming into the course I was thinking about studying Applied Plant Biology in UCC but now I’m certain that plant biology is what I’m definitely interested in and I know now that I find it the most thought-provoking out of all the courses BEES has to offer. I enjoyed learning that plants are much smarter than what people think and with the help of applied plant biologists they can solve many environmental problems.
I hope in the future I can study plants and partake in research or experiments that might help any environmental or climate change problems that we might face in years to come.
